AvP OUTBREAK v2.02c Extended opening PLUS faneditors feedback changes.

THIS VERSION replaces the original 1.061 and 2.02 release which are no longer available.
It now incorporates an additional 46 trims and changes plus over 70 score enhancements including both Predator movies which were not previously used.
This in fact makes a HUGE difference and am suprise I did not do this until pointed out to me by the faneditors…DOH!
This very much turns this into a worth franchise memeber in my view.

This also includes the re-enstatement of the elaborately concieved and reluctantly dropped Myan concieved opening which originally drove me to undertake this fanedit.
I have made a few minor tweaks to this as well and removed a number of rendring glitches and made other corrections etc and additional trims spotted by fellow faneditors totaling just under 3 minutes.
Overall running time though is identical to the previous version due to some re-incorporated scenes and slightly longer end titles.
These additional changes are marked* in the description below which is followed by the score enhancements seperately in order NOT to confuse.

AvP OUTBREAK v2.02c Extended opening PLUS faneditors feedback changes.

THIS VERSION replaces the original 1.061 and 2.02 release which are no longer available.
It now incorporates an additional 46 trims and changes plus over 70 score enhancements including both Predator movies which were not previously used.
This in fact makes a HUGE difference and am suprise I did not do this until pointed out to me by the faneditors…DOH!
This very much turns this into a worth franchise memeber in my view.

This also includes the re-enstatement of the elaborately concieved and reluctantly dropped Myan concieved opening which originally drove me to undertake this fanedit.
I have made a few minor tweaks to this as well and removed a number of rendring glitches and made other corrections etc and additional trims spotted by fellow faneditors totaling just under 3 minutes.
Overall running time though is identical to the previous version due to some re-incorporated scenes and slightly longer end titles.
These additional changes are marked* in the description below which is followed by the score enhancements seperately in order NOT to confuse.
Cuts and Additions:
Completely new Opening Titles

001 opening from ALIEN 3 up to FOX FADE
002 segues into slowed section of green hue with new title overlay
003 Title opens with Alien 3 music for about 20sec,
004 segues into theme from AvP the Game with BOTH tracks going at the same time,
005 with an overdubbed fade motif from ALIENS and ALIEN
006 Flash at title name overlaps 3 audio effects from Aliens, AvPgame and AvPr the movie

013 48 shots are taken from Apocalypto and cropped to the correct aspect ratio
014 This sequence competely restructures the sacrifice into a tighter sequence and virtually no 2 consequtive shots appear next to eachother in the source material
015 Objective to show mans depravity in worshipping the gods with extensive audio work to tie the sequence together and retain key portions of synched sound.
016 AvP flashback shot of the temple pre-explosion is used twice. Once reversed play and contrast corrected to tie into the eclipse
017 Avp second shot is as in the AvP flashback but moved to the front of the sequence to act as a bridge
018 Eclipse flashes to Predator ship

019 Myan sequence from AvP has one shot trim and deletes the nuclear explosion.
020 Voice over from the AvP flashback also removed since it is incredibly annoying.
021 Extensive audio and remade soundaffects for the sequence.

024 includes back to colour segue
AvP
025 Additional scoring acts as bridge

This fan edit definitely succeded at what the editor wanted it does bring the best out of both films, but it doesn't make a good movie.
If you are a fan of those movies and want to rewatch them, watch this instead because it is just the two AvP films shortened and then combined,

However, as a single movie, It feels really wired that the movie wastes time building characters at the beginning of the film only for them to quickly die, and then the protagonist from the first half doesn't show up in the second film.
You either want to split it into 2 different movies each will be 80 minutes or reduce the focus from the characters of the first part, together it just doesn't work.

The video quality also has some issues aside from being available only at 480p there are also some big changes in colors from scene to scene and the parts from the other movies aren't in the same quality, but to be fair this is an old fan edit and Wraith has a lot of other fan edits that proves he is one of the best fan editors out there.

Watched the first half of Wraith's AvP: Outbreak. It's from 2009 so the quality isn*t the very best and the aspect ratio seems quite stretched.

The edit itself is alright (some transitions are kind of messy) but because a lot of scenes were removed from the movie, the plot feels rushed in my opinion. I really liked the extended opening with the footage from Apocalypto though. His aim was to put both AvP entries into one cohesive movie but after watching this edit I just don‘t think this is possible.

As the original Unrated version of the first AvP is quite alright in my book as well I think I'll just stick to the original.

Sadly the second half (AvP:R) hasn‘t received any kind of color correction or brightening (would've been a major task, I know) so it‘s still way too dark to make out what‘s happening on the screen. That isn‘t Wraith‘s fault in any kind of way but I will keep searching for a tightened and brightened edit of that movie.

Edit: Found one. 16 years after the initial release I finally found a brightened, contrast- and color-corrected edit of this film (truly amazing work, done by fan editor SpoRv) and was amazed how much of a difference it makes when you‘re finally able to see what the fuck is going on. It’s still dark and I’d still recommend to watch it at night but it fits the tone. The edit I watched „only“ tackled the visual issues (still a major task) and leaves all the rest as it is in the Unrated Version.

Don‘t get me wrong: the film is still dumb. Characters and plot are paper-thin, the direction is bad, the camera often shaky, actors & actresses mediocre at best and callback moments to both franchise‘s previous entries are executed terribly but my god do costumes & effects look great when you are finally able to fucking see them. They look so good, most of the time they made me forgot what kind of nonsense was happening on the screen. Might be a effect that wears off after the enlightenment of the first watch but we‘ll see (in the truest sense of word).

I always wondered why the Strouse brothers took the one thing they‘re really good at (and that‘s the visuals) and edited it in a way you can‘t see it. Supposedly they did it in post-production (as the set photos are well lit) because they didn‘t want people to see they used special effects. But why ever and however they did it, they certainly overdid it.

This version keeps me wishing that more people would‘ve or even could’ve seen it this way (you have to know about the existence of fanedits in the first place and even then it‘s kinda hard to get). Maybe Fox/Disney will release an official overhauled version one day (called Enlightenment instead of Requiem as that title makes no sense anyway) but I don‘t think there‘s much hope.

I will even go this far and say I‘d watch the sequel (if it looks like this one) that was hinted at at the end of the film but then abandoned. Let‘s be real, I‘d watch it anyway but so I might be able to enjoy it instead of squinting my eyes all the time and then roll them backwards.

Watching these films for the first time in a long time, as Wraith's fanedit was a really enjoyable experience. I'm not close enough to the original studio edits to fully appreciate all the work that Wraith put into this Fanedit. However after watching this edit, it did feel like a cohesive extended film, rather than 2 films bolted together. Well done Wraith!

As I told Wraith, I once attempted this mash-up edit myself. I found the final product to lack a cohesive narrative, to be overly long and ultimately headache inducing. AVP is a concept that should have worked right out of the gate. Where the first movie suffers is that it played it safe with a PG-13 rating. The second movie goes for a hard R, but has some of the worst human characters in the history of both previous franchises.

Wraith has masterfully trimmed what doesn't work, while successfully expanding upon what does work with the inclusion of footage from Apocalypto and Cocoon, Some of the edits are seamless, while others are quite noticeable do to stark difference in video quality. That aside, I didn't let that affect my enjoyment of the film. I had a blast with this edit!

I'd love to see a remastered version with improved video quality and credit graphics. But this version has a fun, almost retro feel that you get used to after a while.

i was disappointed with AVP and for the most part enjoyed AVPR despite some scenes, but this fanedit removes the disappointing parts of the films, and focuses on the best of both films, and creates a story that respects the source material of each franchise.

this edit does use scenes from the 2006 film Apocalypto to help build the history that AVP tries to convey. I found the use of these scenes interesting, and helpful to the story. The scenes themselves do seem ever so slightly out of place, but that is not the fault of Wraith.

The pace stays consistent with the narrative. Both AVP and AVPR had pacing problems due to unnecessary scenes and dialogue that jarred with the rest of the film. In Outbreak, the removal of these scenes create a clearer mental picture, and a more overall focused theme, While AVPR itself does have a different theme and location, Wraith has done a great job in blending both movies together to keep a cohesive story.
